Tybee Island is the perfect destination for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. However, while this barrier island is known for its laid-back atmosphere, that doesn’t mean it’s boring. There is no shortage of things to do and see near your Tybee Beach Vacation Rentals home, including outdoor adventures and incredible shopping. Our charming town is also only about 20 minutes from Savannah, GA, so exploring places like the historic district is just a short drive away!
Go on Tours of the Savannah Neighborhood
Savannah is made up of several unique areas, including the Historic Landmark District. Known as the hub of downtown, there is something for everyone to enjoy here. One of the best things to do in this Savannah neighborhood is to embark on guided tours that’ll show off the sights while teaching you about the past. If you’d rather explore at your own pace, you can purchase and download a self-guided tour that starts at the visitor center and takes you along almost five miles of cobblestone streets.
Old Savannah Tours offers a number of excursions to choose from. The most popular option is the hop-on/hop-off tour that starts at the Savannah Welcome Center and travels to 14 historic stops. The best part of this option is you can get off the trolley to get a closer look at something or remain seated if you’d rather move on to the next stop.
Wear your most comfortable shoes for a walking tour with Genteel & Bard. The Savannah History Tour lasts about two hours and takes you past popular landmarks like Green-Meldrim House and Colonial Park Cemetery. They also offer a Savannah Women’s History Tour, and, if you’re feeling brave, a Dark History & Ghost Encounter Tour.
Let segways be your mode of transportation on an excursion with Adventure Tours in Motion. With both 60 and 90-minute tours available, you can choose the best option for your schedule. You can also book an e-bike tour or luxury van tour.
Before or after your tour, keep the fun going by exploring the parks and squares found here. If you find yourself getting hungry, don’t worry! There are countless restaurants to dine at, so you can enjoy a delicious meal before returning to your Tybee Island rental.
